A radical change in BMW’s design philosophy. The future generation of the BMW 7 Series, and its electric variant of the BMW i7 that will be released on the market between 2022 and 2023, will debut a new style in the brand. The future electric i7 will raise the bar further by betting on a more avant-garde image, such as the advance that we offer you today.
The first spy photos of the new generation of the BMW 7 Series that will arrive in 2022, and the electric variant baptized as the BMW i7 scheduled for 2023, will offer a much more avant-garde design, a true point and apart with the current philosophy. Many are seeing a more modern legacy of the E65 generation signed by Chris Bangle that pilloried BMW.
There is no doubt that the brand image will look much more modern and almost futuristic, debuting in the brand’s flagship, and later moving to the rest of the models. The prototypes of the also new BMW X8 have a very similar aesthetic, highlighting the lower position of the front light clusters, with a more rectangular shape.
The future BMW i7 will break the stylistic canon of the brand in 2023
A design that we have reproduced in this recreation that we offer you, the first preview given the current state of development of the luxury electric vehicle that, although it does not yet have production lighting, does reflect where the headlights will be positioned. An important change that we will also see in the shape of the ovoid grill.
Until now, the two elements that made up the grille were a “sacred” element, but it has been verticalized and narrowed for the more sporty models, so BMW will also give a special touch to this future i7, making it wider to connect with the headlights and trim, which will also allow the front to move slightly forward.
A special design that will bring with it a significant technological load in all aspects, with autonomous driving functions inherited from the closest BMW iX. The German firm will offer a luxury saloon with a large interior space, a flat-floor cabin without interference, and a large 120 kWh battery with which it will be able to face trips of up to 700 kilometers on a single charge.
This element will be a standard in the three available versions of the model, the i740, i750, i7 M60. The first will be equipped with an electric motor on the rear axle, while the remaining two will have two electric motors and xDrive all-wheel drive. Technicians work in an on-demand system, to maximize efficiency and guarantee the maximum possible autonomy.
